What to look out for in paris

Formula E returns to Les Invalides, Paris for the fourth consecutive year. Watch 22 cars rip around charming cobbled streets and breeze past iconic architecture as they battle for the win. This ain't no love story. This is Formula E.
  • Can the record streak of unpredictability continue? 
    Since the Championship kicked off the 2018/19 season in Saudi Arabia late last year, we've seen a different driver from a different team climb to the top of the podium in each of the seven rounds. "We've had seven different winners from seven different teams - who knows what will happen in Paris," said HWA Racelab's Stoffel Vandoorne following the race in Rome. With the second round of the voestalpine European races fast approaching, will Formula E's record streak continue as the Championship rumbles into Paris on April 27? Tune in to find out. 
  • Back to the beginning 
    Once upon a time, in a small restaurant tucked away in the back streets of Paris, the idea for an all-electric street racing race series was scribbled on the back of a napkin by Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag and President of the FIA Jean Todt. Years later, that concept has developed into the fastest growing sport on the planet. But it wasn't just Formula E that was born in the city. Back in 1894, the French capital hosted the start of the Paris–Rouen race, which is widely regarded as the world's first ever motor race. 
  • Circuit des Invalides
    Ah, the sights and sounds of Paris - the City of Light - romance capital of the world and birthplace of motorsport as we know it today. But for us, it's just past the crucial mid-way point in the voestalpine European races - a 1.9km inner-city battleground and the only home race for our reigning champion Jean-Eric Vergne. While Paris might be the shortest track in the calendar, it's far from the easiest.

Evans brings home emotional maiden win

"The win couldn't have come at a more important time," said Panasonic Jaguar Racing's Mitch Evans, still grinning after securing his and the team's first victory in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship. "It's been a tough couple of seasons since we joined the Championship but we made it happen today. It's a little later than we'd have liked but we'll take it and crack on with the Championship and see what we've got!"

 

ATTACK MODE is make or break

If it wasn't for the new ATTACK MODE, the plucky young Kiwi driver might not have made it to the top step of the podium. In Rome, a well-timed, strategic activation from Evans saw the Jaguar driver use the extra power to catapult past race leader Andre Lotterer and clinch the win. For Lotterer, it was the difference between his maiden win and a second place. Think Formula E is easy? Think again.

Why Watch Formula E in 2019?

New Cars

While the championship might be only five years old, the technology racing around the circuit is ever-changing. The 2018/19 season sees 22 brand new Gen2 cars racing around the world in anger for the very first time. The Batmobile-esque all-electric racer has double the energy storage capacity of the Gen1 car, meaning it can complete a whole race, so wave goodbye to mid-race car swaps. With 250kW of power, the Gen2 will accelerate from 0-100km/h in 2.8-seconds and go on to a top speed of 280km/h. Greater speeds, more action on track and with just one car per driver - there's everything to lose. 

New power modes

The 2018/19 season is set to be more intense than ever before. New ATTACK MODE lets every driver pick up an extra hit of power at their own risk. To fire up ATTACK MODE, drivers will need to arm their car, drive off the racing line, and through the Activation Zone. It’s only here that they’ll be able to collect an extra 25 kW of power. Drivers that secure the extra speed, can use it for a few laps when they want to race harder, giving them the edge to keep ahead of the competition.

The best driver line up

With newcomers HWA Racelab taking the total number of teams to 11, the 2018/19 season of Formula E boasts one of the finest driver line-ups in motorsport. With the likes of Felipe Massa (Venturi Formula E), Pascal Wehrlein (Mahindra Racing), Alexander Sims (BMW i Andretti Motorsport), Maximillian Guenther (Geox Dragon), Oliver Rowland (Nissan e.dams), Gary Paffett and Stoffel Vandoorne (HWA Racelab) all new to the series, the competition is higher than ever before. With all drivers fighting to earn their seat, it’s tough at the top.

13 races in 12 cities over 5 continents

At Formula E we turn any city into a race track. The Formula E 2018/19 season calendar sees some familiar favourites reappear alongside some new, iconic cities. With a total of 13 races in 12 cities spread across five continents, what started in Saudi Arabia will return to Marrakesh and Santiago before moving to Mexico City, Hong Kong and, for the first time, Sanya in mainland China. For the newly titled voestalpine European races, we're back on the streets of Rome, Paris, Monaco and Berlin before the series makes its debut in Bern ahead of finishing up with a double-header season finale in New York City, where we'll crown a new champion. It's going to be one hell of a ride.
